Subject: A Day in the Life of: Ralph
The scene where Ralph runs like he's frightened (with ominous background music), made me think I missed something. Maybe in deleted scenes we would see him poking at bear cubs.
The fishing sequences and dramatic light at beginning and end make for fitting bookends to the film.
